This was a very different Thanksgiving than we are used to. Luke had to stay in Florida so we were daddyless. My mom didn't host my families Thanksgiving for the first time in my memory and had to work on top of that. Then of course, the abscence of said husband made getting kids ready and jumping place to place very difficult for me to do alone. All that aside, this was Jude's first Thanksgiving and I enjoyed watching him eat ALL the traditional foods.
